Bella You is a beautiful bridal shop. They have lots of dresses to choose from and it’s very spacious. Amanda and Margaret were great to work with and very attentive. They listened to everything I wanted in a wedding dress and found me the perfect one! I highly recommend checking out this store. It’s nice to go to a small independent store rather than those big box stores. If I could give them ten stars I would.
I read so many reviews that were not favorable for this shop. I went in anyways because of their moving sale. It was my first time trying on dresses, and I fell in love and found my dress only after trying a few on. It was a great discount for a one of a kind dress. Margaret and Amanda were both knowledge and thoughtful. They made me feel special each time I went into the shop. Their seamstress Josephine designed straps for my dress out of extra material of my dress. It made for an even more beautiful dress. I received so many compliments the day of the wedding and I truly felt like a princess. Thank you so much, Bella You!!
I bought my dress from Bella You and it was a wonderful experience. I had difficulty finding light weight dresses at the other places I had been to. Bella You does a lot of destination weddings so they have more of a selection. They were wonderful to work with and very helpful. I also got my bridesmaids dresses from them and their prices were comparable to every other place I looked. I was able to get my alterations done right there and they gave me my “something borrowed.” Wonderful place, wonderful experience!
I had a FABULOUS experience with Bella You for the selections of my bridal gown AND bridesmaid dresses! They were so wonderful in helping me choose a dress as I was quite undecided! I must have tried on almost every dress in the store,. Then, Margaret, the owner, said “hold on, I have one more I think you’ll like! ” It was IT! Amanda, was also amazing… Being completely honest all the way! Taking my concerns and working with them until it was perfect! Josephine, the seamstress, added small touches to the dress to truly make it my OWN! The dress turned put BEAUTIFUL! The team at Bella You is REAL! They don’t tell you what you want to hear and will work with you until you’re satisfied! I would definitely recommend them to anyone!
Bella You was one of our first stops during my dress shopping weekend. They accommodated us on a Sunday which was awesome, I was able to have my mother, mother-in-law & two sisters come along! I had a pretty clear idea of what I was looking for – but still tried on different styles not to cut my options short. They didn’t have what I was looking for, but Amanda called me a few weeks later letting me know they got a few new styles in and may be what I am looking for. That phone call was by no means rude or a pushy sales call like I had received at other dress shops – it was actually great that someone had listened to what I was looking for and offering up options. I went in the next day and my dress was in the group of new dresses. I was thrilled, it was absolutely perfect! Amanda knows her stuff and is in my opinion the most knowledgable staff member there. My dress came in a timely fashion for wedding dresses – you really do need 6-8months! I also purchased my veil and shoes from Bella You, both were fantastic – I felt the price to be a little high on the veil but I couldn’t find anything else like it anywhere so I guess it was worth it! I used there recommended seamstress and she too, was fantastic! My dress fit perfectly. I would recommend checking them, just ask for Amanda! She’ll get you the perfect dress!
I was hesitant to try this store because of some reviews, but my mom works with the owner’s son and thought we should give it a try. So far, I’m SO glad I did! I loved a lot of the dresses I tried on, and finally choose one. The following day, I changed my mind to another dress and Margaret was able to switch it and even accommodated another appointment for new measurements. And, oh, how I LOVE this dress! It would come measured to my height and require no hemming, and the designer would be able to add the sleeves I wanted. Fast forward to the dress coming in, and the sleeves were wrong and it was 5 inches longer than what was ordered! I was sad at the appointment because I wanted to see “my” dress and it looked no different than the sample I tried on. But, Margaret is arranging for her seamstress to make new sleeves and hem the dress to the ordered length at no cost. I’m so thankful that she was able to remedy the situation. Even though I have to wait a little longer to see the finished product, I’m happy because I know it will be done exactly right! Thank you!
“So far everyone at Bella You has been great to work with! After visiting many bridal boutiques in both my home town and in Rochester, I was pretty discouraged in my dress search. I had an appointment to go in and after getting into town earlier than anticipated they had no problem with moving my appointment time a little earlier. Their staff was knowledgeable and helped in pulling dresses for me to try on based on a few question about what style I wanted. They zipped everything, tied everything, had shoes for me to use, brought out accessories to show me that I might like, took everything on and off the hangers – my mom came along and all she had to do was watch me show off each dress, it was great! At many other places we visited we were basically left on our own to figure out how to zip and tie complicated dresses. I ordered my dress in November, and they offered to “pre-measure” to have it hemmed ahead of time at the factory for a little extra on the price. That worked out perfectly since I would have had to pay to have it altered anyway for my height. My dress arrived back at the store in May just as expected, perfect size, perfect length. I will have the rest of the alterations done once our date is a little closer. They are storing the dress until our wedding next summer.
A+++! I highly recommend Bella You!”
Every step of the “finding my dress” process was great with Bella You. I went there with a good amount of family members and friends (probably too many) and they were so accommodating. Both of the girls that I worked with were so sweet, and helped me make some big decisions when I couldn’t decide between two dresses. In addition, I live in North Carolina now, so my availability to come in and pick up the dress and get fitted was limited and they worked with me. The seamstress they work with is PHENOMENAL and is doing quite a few things to make my dress custom. She is great to work with and is available at any time. Loved this place!
Before going to Bella You, I tried on dresses at a few other more well known national ‘chain’ bridal stores. Nothing they did at those other shops came anywhere close to the amazing service I received at Bella You. Amanda is so sweet, and helpful. She made me feel comfortable right from the time I walked in the front door. She listened to me and took everything I said into consideration when picking dresses for me to try on. She was very knowledgeable, and didn’t just tell me what I wanted to hear. My mother and older sister were at both initial appointments with me, and Amanda and Margaret both made sure they felt welcome and included. I didn’t feel rushed or pressured to make any decisions that I wasn’t ready to make. When I felt overwhelmed, they were totally understanding and gave me time alone to process everything.
The dress selection is not as large as some of the bigger stores, but they carry a wide range of styles for every body type, and they can tailor any dress to be exactly how you want it to be. I’ve never heard at any other bridal shop that the seamstress can add a corset back to any dress! They might not have a huge inventory, but the dresses that they do have are all gorgeous. They don’t stock their racks with cheap, low quality dresses just so they appear to have a high inventory.
I could go on and on about how much I loved my experience at Bella You. I found the perfect wedding gown, and will definitely be getting bridesmaid dresses there as well. I highly recommend this vendor!
Everyone at Bella You was wonderful! I not only found my gown here but my mom got her dress here as well and we were both extremely pleased. Bella You made my experience personal and stress free, what every bride deserves!
